Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink
Book Description"Caddie Woodlawn," which has been captivating young readers since 1935, was awarded the John Newbery Medal for the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. Now it is in a brand-new edition with lively illustrations by Trina Schart Hyman. In her new foreword, Carol Ryrie Brink lovingly recalls the real Caddie, who was her grandmother, and tells how she often "sat spellbound, listening, listening!" as Caddie told stories of her pioneer childhood. Children everywhere will love redheaded Caddie with her penchant for pranks. Scarcely out of one scrape before she is into another, she refuses to be a "lady, " preferring instead to run the woods with her brothers. Whether she is crossing the lake on a raft, visiting an Indian camp, or listening to the tales of the circuit rider, Caddie's adventures provide an exciting and authentic picture of life on the Wisconsin frontier in the 1860s. And readers will discover, as Caddie learns what growing up truly means, that it is not so very different today.

This beloved story follows the frontier adventures of Caddie Woodlawn, a tomboy growing up in Wisconsin during the 1860s. More likely to plow than bake, she's the despair of her mother and older sister. But when Indians threaten to massacre the settlers, it's Caddie who saves the day.
US Kirkus Review » Wisconsin and farm life in the years just before the Civil War, and the story of Caddie who became a tomboy and who learned to plough instead of sew. There is plenty of incident, and there is also an authentic picture of life on a frontier farm when massacre was a real threat and when a livelihood, hardly earned, allowed for fun in natural outdoor things.
